You'd be surprised that players do actually read forums prior to joining a club to gather an idea about what the fans' general mentality towards the running of the Club, current players and new signings is.

I remember not so long ago, reading on a club forum on here that mentioned a potential player felt disheartened by what he'd read on the forum and as a result turned the club down because of the way the fans reacted about his possible signing once it had leaked out.

They may be few and far between but it does happen. I would imagine Agents' publicity is worse than reading forums, but going on past experiences it's not really something I think our club wish to have happen again.

Ribbit, no offence but cut it out!! Nothing on posted on here would change anything in a players eyes about wanting to join this club.

Yes, i agree it should be kept under wraps but stop dishing out the ultimatum's and threats. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/angry.gif" alt="" />

People can talk about what they like, it wont make a blind bit of difference in the end.


I'm sorry, we must have crossed wires or something, 'cause I could've sworn the club asked we don't speculate. Don't tell me to 'cut it out' either, since you're the one speculating.

Any threats were purely tongue in cheek, so don't get yourself wound up.

Ribbit, cut it out. I think you'll find i've never mentioned anyone's name so it doesn't really matter what I say. I think if you look up about 3 or 4 posts, you'll see one of the players has been mentioned, and it wasn't by me! Probably by one of your mates but thats ok i suppose!!!!

I'm hardly likely to apologise when I'm not the one in the wrong. Stop telling me to 'cut it out', you fat Yank twat.

What's the problem here then?

This thread was about rumours of an injured player, which have now been cleared up.

I'm not sure Matt but Ribbit accused me of naming names when i "wouldn't dream of it". He's obviously having a bad day so i'll leave him to it but in future its probably best if he cuts out these kind of outbursts. <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/bawling.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/bawling.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/bawling.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/bawling.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/bawling.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/bawling.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/bawling.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/bawling.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/bawling.gif" alt="" />

I didn't accuse you of anything other than speculating.
And I'm telling you, you're lucky this is a message board, 'cause you would've had a slap by now if it wasn't.

I can't see how speculating on a player's injury is worthy of threats like that Ribbit.

The rumour has been cleared up in this very thread, so I would've thought that all of us would be happy to learn that the injury is not as bad as first reported.

That wasn't a threat and that's not why I said it either. The point is, if he had wound me up like that in person, I'd've chinned him. Nothing to do with speculating.

Ribbit Ribbit Ribbit,

First off, speculating is unfortunately human nature and anyone can talk about anything they like. But due to the clubs request, i have only discussed names via private messages to other people on this message board.

Secondly, i seriously think you should cut out the rants as its bad for your Karma. i'd suggest you get some dinner, put your feet up for a couple of hours and then get an early night!! Oh, and cut out anything likely to make you rant again! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/attentat.gif" alt="" />
